    Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Brazil's president, has arrived in Haiti to see for himself the damage last month's earthquake caused.

    He is also meeting Rene Preval, his Haitian counterpart, and visiting Brazilian troops at the UN's new logistical base there.

    Even before the earthquake, Brazil had a "special relationship" with Haiti, as Al Jazeera's Lucia Newman reports.
